We are all in the midst of contracting a cold: Either we’ve had one recently, or feel constantly on the verge of one. There are ways to cure and prevent them the natural way, rather than feeling like we’re on a Z pack every other week. Here are four teas that can help prevent and cure your winter cold:
Sore Throat: Slippery elm, marshmallow root, and licorice all can help ease a sore throat. Try Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat.
Congestion or Stuffy Nose: Peppermint can be a quick and temporary fix for a stuffy nose. It will help thin the mucus in your nasal passages giving you some relief. The spice compound found in ginger tea can also help thin out an mucous that is blocking your nasal passages. Try Organic India Tulsi Peppermint Tea.
Cough: Slippery elm and wild cherry are effective in helping relieve a cough. Licorice tea can also help reduce cough and other bronchial issues. Thyme can also provide cough and bronchial symptom relief. Try Traditional Medicinals Herba Tussin tea.
Headache: Many headaches are caused by tension or stress. To help alleviate these problems try drinking a tea with holy basil, chamomile, or kava root. Try Alvita Organic Holy Basil Tea.
